It is easy to build a post and beam barn kit.

All the complicated work has been done for you.

No need to learn mortise and tenon joinery. No need to figure out the right angles to cut or where to drill your holes. In a kit your joinery and cuts have all been laid out and cut ahead of time. All you need to do is bolt your barn frame together and stand it up.
